I don't know how to do the n with the wavy line over it. Well, came in late last night, didn't get a chance to see the Mariachis, so I ask you all, how did he do? Was it good enough to grant him honorary "Latino Heat" status?
After a quarter of a century on this planet, there's three things I know for sure... 1)Ain't nothing like a Dirty Pair marathon on New Year's Eve. 2)I'd make a fine Mrs. HHH II. 3) I'd make an acceptable Mrs. Orton. 1400 reasons to luv me!

Brock's dancing...for lack of a better way to put it, was part his normal in-ring *hop hop hop* and part Elaine Benes.
I liked the whole segment, but I wouldn't even put Brock up to DA JUICE status yet if you mean what I think you do. Basically it was his normal "Emilio Estevez in The Breakfast Club meets The Michelan Man" gimmick with a little ethnic taunting thrown on top.
Was it just me, or did Brock seem to enjoy dancing with the mariachis much more than trying to sound all intimidating when cutting a promo on Goldberg? Regardless of the quality of his dancing, he really seemed to be enjoying himself, which certainly doesn't help any piece.
I thought it was well done. Brock looked like he was fighting severe itching in his leg- and groinal- regions. So, it gets the double bonus of making him look like an a$$hole and a schmuck who can't dance. I don't think it was "over the line" offensive. If he had stolen Art Barr's old "feigning the backstroke on the mat to indicate his opponents were 'wetbacks', " then that would have been too much. Of course, sometimes they do things on PPV they wouldn't on free tv, so who knows...

Thanks, I'll remember that. By the way, I did have the thing on tape, but didn't have a chance to look at it. I did just a few minutes ago, and well, I lost it when he was freaked by the trumpet player. Looked to me like he was trying to do a salsafied version of the classic Flair Shuffle!

Ha! Oh man, if only Art Barr were still around...he and Eddie would be having the dueling promos of a lifetime.
After seeing that, I keep getting a visual of Brock popping up in a cornfield on Hee Haw! with Roy Clark.
Ever seen that episode of the Simpsons where Homer gets Lurleen a spot on the country show Wah Hoo? Brock can be Big Shirtless Ron!
Wait…if it’s MLK Jr. Day AND Pat Patterson’s Birthday…who gets the token win here?-- Matt "Excalibur05" Hocking on a match between Mark Henry and Rico
MH: What’s a clever way to say that I have a penis? CJ: Uh…Mark, nobody’s going to buy that shirt. MH: How about if I say that I’ve got…a…uh…? CJ: Coming up with T-Shirt ideas is hard Mark, why not leave it to the WWE marketing department. MH: I know! I’ve got it! CJ: Got what? MH: Stank! That’s Mah Stank! I’m gonna make a fortune!! CJ: “That’s Mah Stank”? MH: On the front it’ll say “Can You Smell It?” and on the back it’ll say “That’s Mah Stank”. Everybody’ll buy it because they’ll think it’s a Rock shirt. CJ: You know…you might be on to something there, sad to say. MH: I can’t wait to show mah stank to Trish.
You know, I have a feeling that Spanky didn’t quit, he was fired. Why? So they could repackage Mark Henry as “Stanky.” Think about THAT! --Matt "Excalibur05" Hocking, 1/19/04 Raw Satire
These are the types of promos better suited for obnoxious, cocky heels like Chris Jericho or HBK or even Ric Flair. Seeing BROCK try one of these promos out for size was a very interesting visual to say the least. But it came out hilarious, especially considering it was BROCK FREAKIN LESNAR trying to dance to a mariachi. You usually don't see muscular, Ivan Drago-like heels try to bust a move like that.
Of course, the whole "Those guys swam a long way to be here tonight!" might have offended a few, but I'm one of those self-deprecating Latinos, so it was no dirt off my back.
Edge: So it shouldn't be long before I come back, since Smackdown's gonna need another main eventer. Funaki: There's always Bob Holly. Edge: HAHAHAHAHAHA!! What? You're serious? DUDE! How long have I been out???
Lesnar acted like a total jackass last night, and it worked. I liked the "These guys swam all the way from Mexico" line... and the segment accomplished two things. Not only did it establish Lesnar more as a cocky heel, but Eddie's intense promo was made better because it was in stark contrast with the whole mariachi thing.
Of course they had to telegraph it with the "my client" remark before the match, but overall I thought it was well done, especially with the news of Brock's injury. I was extremely entertained by the entire PPV, definitely worth my money.
